Unlocking Opportunities: Exploring 10 Newly Added ETF CFDs for the Chinese Market at FXOpen

FinanceFeeds Editorial Team

China stands as a global economic powerhouse, boasting a dynamic and diversified capital markets system that spans across various industries. The country’s economic vibrancy, coupled with its modern outlook and futuristic advancements, continues to attract investors worldwide. In the first quarter of 2023 alone, China recorded a remarkable national GDP of $14.8 trillion, showcasing a robust year-on-year growth of 5.2%.


While China’s economic prowess is evident, navigating its markets can be challenging due to its centrally planned, government-controlled economic system. However, avenues for investment participation in Chinese industries are accessible through US-administered Electronically Traded Funds (ETFs). FXOpen introduced 19 new ETFs, tradable as Contracts for Difference (CFDs), providing investors with a gateway to explore specific sectors of the Chinese market.
